ohh I can't believe it

I made it! I am DONE planning lessons! Hallelujah! Now I just have to focus on getting all my papers written for my TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) endorsement. Everything is due by next Friday the 9th, which will also mark my 39th week of pregnancy! Student teaching flew, but I'm so glad that it's over. I am really starting to ache all over and dealing with teenagers all day can wear anyone out.

I got checked at my 37 week appointment four days ago and you know what he said? "You've got nothin' (referring to 0 cm dilated and 0% effaced)  ...Miss Amy, you could still be pregnant in the 20s of December."

I wanted to throw my shoe at him. Oh wait, I was barefoot and my pants were off. There is no such thing as modesty when you're preggo.

I'm thinking that this is my doc's style---to really exaggerate so that the end result is never disappointing. Remember the weight appointment? How he said that at the rate I was going I'd be 180 pounds by the end? Yeah well kiss my booty.

Some fun happenings in the Freeman fam.:

Mark's older brother Erik is the Orem High wrestling head coach, so last week we went to see the Tigers in their first match of the season. I can't wait to put our little "Boomer" in youth wrestling. We saw dozens of little boys ages 3-10 matched up wrestling each other in the wrestling room....seriously so adorable. I wish that I would have taken a picture of them--but their parents were all watching and I didn't want to look like a creeper.

I couldn't help but notice my husband's name on the wall:
The only problem is that golden color... (Go Timpview!) But it was my first live wrestling match EVER and I can't see why it's not more popular! There's blood, sweat, tears, vomit...everything that exudes masculinity and manhood (right??). Boys of all shapes and sizes can participate and be awesome at it. It was such a huge part of Mark's life and he was excited to teach me all about it. The Tigers won that night, which is a pretty big deal considering that Erik is rebuilding the program this year.

Thanksgiving was a total hit this year. I enjoyed getting 5 days off of school---probably a little too much.
Here we are at the mall after getting bagels at Einstein's (I ate four of them... Heaven on Earth in mi boca) Breaking Dawn, getting our nails done, and shopping. This was the day before Thanksgiving so we didn't go too crazy in stores...the sales weren't up to par. We had such a fun time and missed having Fifi and Nico in the picture! Imagine my mother saying, "You could have this baby any day now, so you HAVE to get your nails done!"....Hmm....I had to think really long and hard about that one! Thanks mama for such a FUN day!

Now on to the "Turkey bowl"
I'm a little suspicious that some of these are of him purposefully posing for me.
 Isn't that a great hat? I think it accentuates his desirable high cheek bones.

 My brother Austin is a senior this year! Crazy! I never get to see this kid--he's always running around.

 I fulfilled my role as cheerleader/photographer on the sidelines. A perk to being 9 months pregnant in the winter? No need for a coat. Or long sleeves. Or long pants.
This is how much Erica loves Robbie. Erica fulfilled her role as supportive wife to Mr. Larson. Notice her Little Mermaid jacket....
Why hello there....

Robbie's punt after-shot.
And of photos.
Tough guys.
Happy guys ready to do some major damage in the kitchen!
We headed up to my parents' house after their game and had an amazing brunch with buttermilk pancakes, bacon, eggs Benedict, and scrambled eggs. Mark and I were there until about 2:30 and then we headed up to Saratoga Springs to join Mark's family for a Thanksgiving feast. And boy....that was amazing. Mark's brother Erik woke up at 5 a.m. to smoke the turkey and it was absolutely delicious.
This picture is terrible. However, I wanted to add it because my legs look 12 feet long. And yes, my feet and ankles really are that swollen...ouch!
Food coma.
This little man is just nice and toasty and squooshed in my bell. I can tell that he's gaining weight because my once "outtie" belly button is turning into a "flattie" and when I feel him move it seems like my whole body shifts. I'm worried sick he'll be a 10-pounder if he stays in me a week later than my due date. Mark and I packed his diaper bag and installed his car seat two nights we need to pack our bags! I can't believe he can come any time. I have a feeling that he'll come late though....he's not ready to share himself with everyone quite yet. He's a mama's boy already! Or maybe it's just that I'm not ready to share him with anyone else....

If I get much bigger, I'll take that last statement back! Pictures of his room are coming! I still need to cover the 80s patterned cushions on my rocker and get a book shelf and hang some pictures up. We'll see if I get those things done.....

This is a really long blog post. Lo siento! Hasta luego!
 I stole this from my sis-in-law Sarah's blog! She's due in March with a baby girl! can't wait to have all these babies around!
